Any Nobel Prize winning magicians?

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

Richard Feynman's biography, "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman", mentions him doing magic several times over his life. Likewise William Shockley's biography says he was an accomplished magician in high school.

Arno Penzias gets caught up in a stunt.

I haven't exactly won a Nobel Prize but when I came to Canada the immigration officer said that I would be " a cultural and artistic asset to Canada". I am afraid he didn't know me very well.................
